Royds Withy King has been shortlisted for Corporate Law Firm of the Year at the South West Insider Dealmakers Awards 2018.

The firm’s Corporate team has made the award shortlist in recognition of its growing reputation for helping to deliver successful corporate finance transactions, acting for South West-based businesses as well as nationally and cross-border through its alliance with Interleges, an independent network of international law firms.

This coveted award is for the corporate law firm in the South West that has shown innovation and created value in their work on deals within the region over the last 12 months. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Bristol on 14 June.

James Worrall, a partner in Royds Withy King’s Corporate team in Bath, said: “It’s exciting to see our team recognised in this way. The team has been exceptionally busy over the past 18 months and it’s great to be able to showcase our expertise and activities in corporate finance transactions, particularly when it comes to complex M&A work.

“Despite some of the wider economic challenges, businesses remain bullish and determined to fulfil their ambitions. M&A activity in the South West remains strong and clients continue to be positive in their outlook and keen to seize the opportunities available to them, whether they are gearing up for growth, expanding or exiting.

“This shortlisting reflects the hard work of our Corporate team specifically but integral to our success is the joined up service we are able to offer our clients by working closely with colleagues in our Employment, Banking and Real Estate teams as well as our sector specialists with a wealth of knowledge in Financial Services, TMT, Health & Social Care and Retail.”

The South West Corporate team’s recent deals include:
• the £90m sale of Gold Care (Holdings) Limited to Omega Healthcare (a US REIT)
• the buy-in management buyout of Gradwell Communications Limited
• Apollo Multi-Asset Management LLP’s acquisition of a number of international investment funds from Frontier Investment Management
• the sale of Higos Holdings Limited to Global Risk Partners
• the sale of Avon Steel Limited to Breal Capital
• the sale of Avon Plywood Limited to Sydenhams
• the MBO of LDL Components Ltd
• the sale of Frontline Display Holdings Limited to Big Group
• the sale of Alcolock GB Limited to Isotrak Group

Royds Withy King has achieved eight top tier rankings in The Legal 500 2017 and 39 of its lawyers were ranked as ‘Leaders in their Field’ in Chambers & Partners UK 2018, both leading guides to the law. The firm is proud to be ranked for the last five years as a Sunday Times 100 Best Company to Work for. Royds Withy King also received a three star ‘extraordinary’ accreditation from Best Companies in 2017 – one of just six UK law firms to have done so.
